Family of Captured Israeli Soldier Opposes Lebanon War

HeadlineJul 27, 2006

Meanwhile, the family of one of the two captured Israeli soldiers in Lebanon has come out against the war. At a press conference in Paris, Malka Goldwasser, the mother of captured soldier Ehud Goldwasser, appealed for peace.

  • Malka Goldwasser: “I am a mother, and as a mother, I don’t want war. I have three sons, I want to have my three sons at home, I want to be able to raise them, I want to have grandchildren–I simply want to have a normal life. I say no to war, and I am certain that there are many Lebanese who think the same thing. The question needs to be asked of someone else–all I am, is a mother and I don’t want war.”
